Plaxico Burress is being sued, AGAIN. The Barney Fife of the NFL is in trouble this time for the damage done by his pit bulldog during a pit wilding episode. Burress' neighbor was mauled while taking a walk in her neighborhood last May. The victim claimed that "she suffered serious injuries to her head, body, and limbs and that she suffered severe pain and mental anguish" as a result of his negligence. Black Sports On Line is siding with the convicted felon, claiming this is just a money grab.

Plaxico Burress was released from prison June 6, 2010 after serving almost 2 years for gun possession and reckless endangerment. In November 2009, the proud pit bull owner was illegally armed while clubbing in New York. When the gun started to slip, he reached for it and shot himself. Burress' home in New Jersey was searched a month later. The police found a 9mm, a rifle, ammo and the clothes he wore during his famous OOPS moment.

Two domestic distance calls resulted in a temporary restraining orders.
Plaxico Burress has been named in at least 9 civil lawsuits since he joined the NFL in 2000. My favorite was the December 2008 car accident. Burress rear ended another car with his $140,000 Mercedes Benz. Burress had no insurance, it had been canceled 3 days prior to the accident for failing to pay the premium.
